Jan 9 to Jan 12 Sightings

Jan 10 to 12 - Been looking for those Orca, but I'm afraid there's no reported sightings for this period. There are numerous sea lions around with a fair number of them California Sea Lions. The hummingbirds are happy that the snow is gone and it's a bit warmer now. I was surprised to see how much they could puff themselves up in the cold.

Jan 9 - While doing the monthly shore bird species and their numbers count, our group noticed eight blows which looked like Orca just North of VanAnda on Texada Island around 2pm. They traveled tight to the Texada shoreline up to Blubber Bay, where the ferry goes in. Lost sight of them around 4pm.
